This hotel perched at the top of a hill in the jungle of Domincal was breathtakingly beautiful, especially with the sweeping views of the coast from the pool deck. Beyond the obvious, it was the service we received during our stay that made this place so memorable. Marlon constantly went out of his way to make sure we were happy,...

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our 8 day stay here and I cannot say enough great things about the room, the staff, and the food. We stayed in villa 3, which had a breathtaking view of the coast.

The pictures will never do justice to this unbelievable property. After climbing a dirt road, it opens up to a little secluded paradise where the view is probably the best in the area; the sounds are just lovely in morning or night; the sweet smell will enchant you; and the staff is most pleasant and helpful. And to boot, they...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights at the tail end of a two week honeymoon and I can not say enough good things about this place.

We spent 2 weeks travelling around Costa Rica and for the views and setting this was hands done the best place we stayed. To get to the hotel you have to navigate a steep, unpaved road off route 34.

How could anyone not find this a wonderful place to stay. Warm, welcoming, friendly staff, great accommodation and a fabulous setting.

Villas Alturas is marvellous. The villas are lovely, the people that work there are great, the views are amazing. Every villa has sea view, a spectacular 180 (or so) degrees of Pacific bliss.
